It was in 1983. I went with my family to meet violinist Olga Rudge. Visiting Carpaccio's in the Scuola di San Giorgio degli Schiavoni. An emotional encounter which repeats itself each and every time. Scuola di San Giorgio degli Schiavoni, Castello. No idea, I haven't done my homework, I guess. Campo San Giacomo dell'Orio A place where I enjoy spending some time is Campo San Giacomo dell'Orio. It feels like a community and reminds me what the piazza (or campo for Venice) were meant for. Strictly Venetian spoken.
Campo San Giacomo dell'Orio Santa Croce. Gelateria Alaska Alaska is the best gelateria on earth. Just try it. It works best after Cicchetti alla Vedova.
